Lil Twist catches up with Rap-Up to let them know why his collaboration with Wayne was cut from Tha Carter IV and his plans for his album. Apparently “Flowers” wasn’t finished in time for Tha Carter IV because Wayne didn’t finish his verse on it. Maybe we’ll see the song on Twist’s album, which he tells Rap-Up, is due out before the end of the year. He also has collaborations with Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, Drake, and he hinted at Chris Brown. Watch the interview here.

Watch the interview at Billboard.
Lil Wayne’s ‘Tha Carter IV’ is projected to debut at No.1 this week with upwards of 700,000 units sold. This would mean that he will sell more than Jay-Z and Kanye’s ‘Watch The Throne’ but a couple hundred thousand under Lady Gaga. Those are huge numbers, Mack Maine just talked to XXL about how the first weeks sales don’t matter to them. Read more at Billboard.Tweet
